Street Sense Colt Romps to ‘TDN Rising Star’ Performance at Fair Grounds

First Mission (c, 3, Street Sense–Elude, by Medaglia d'Oro), a strong second on debut behind his highly regarded Brad Cox-trained stablemate Bishops Bay (Uncle Mo) sprinting at Fair Grounds Feb. 18, ran to the money as the 1-5 favorite with a 'TDN Rising Star' performance in his two-turn debut in New Orleans Saturday.

Fractious in the gate, the Godolphin homebred shot out to front and bobbled slightly shortly after the start. The blinkered dark bay recovered nicely and tracked in the garden spot in second. He struck the front 2 1/2 furlongs from home and ran up the score in the stretch to win under a hand ride by seven impressive lengths over St. John's (Hard Spun).

The final time for 1 1/16 miles was 1:44.55.

First Mission becomes the 15th 'Rising Star' for Street Sense. First Mission was produced by the winning Medaglia d'Oro mare Elude, a daughter of Argentinian champion 3-year-old filly and MG1SW Forty Marchanta (Arg) (Roar).
